Delivering the very latest research and events central to the field of American Government and Texas Politics, best-selling THE CHALLENGE OF DEMOCRACY, TEXAS EDITION, is highly acclaimed for the non-ideological framework it uses to explore three themes of freedom, order, and equality as political values; the majoritarianism vs. pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, the Tenth Edition includes new examples, figures, data, and current discussions, including a balanced retrospective of the Bush presidency as well as new comparative features that place the United States in a global context.
